I have a couple of questions about my case. First the Judge

Hello,I have a couple of questions about my case. First the Judge made a final ruling before they received a packet of documents, Exhibit which had new information and additional information which most likely would change the out come. So, I want the judge to look into these additional documents. What would this motion be called to add these after the rulingand is there a time limit involved here?

THIS QUESTION IS EDUCATOR ESQ. I AM pro se in a civil case

THIS QUESTION IS FOR LAW EDUCATOR ESQ.I AM pro se in a civil case in WPB Florida. I'm suing a company for slander/ defamation of character as they published an online publication defaming my name, career as a realtor because I was a witness in a case against them in small claims court. as such I served a verified complaint they received and the attorney for the defendants as filed a:"motion for additional time to answer complaint and to file a counter claim"I do not think they should be given additional time to answer the complaint and their allegation in this motion that I published a defamatory online publication on defendant is false and there is no merit in a counterclaim in which they state they want to file.How do I address this to the judge? Do I write a motion to deny defendant's request for additional time to answer complaint and file counter claim" and/or in addition do I request a UMC hearing on this matter with the judge chambers??Do you know the require timeframe that the defendants have to answer a complaint??

I do business throughout the United States via the net, but

I do business throughout the United States via the net, but my client notarized contracts specify: "Governing Law, Venue, Severability. This Contract shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and both parties hereby expressly waive trial by jury in any action and stipulate and agree to enter into mediation proceedings in California."I have Muscular Dystrophy and have worked from home for 19 years using a virtual office to receive mail and packages. Someone in the virtual office received services from a New York client who apparently moved to Florida and sued my company. My company was apparently served June 15, 2016 via this virtual office staff and they failed to notify me. As a result, I missed a pre-trial conference in Martin County, Florida on July 5, 2015 and a Default Final Judgment was entered against my company for $2,363.50 on July 6, 2016. I received a copy of the judgment via mail yesterday.What can I do?

Hope this massage finds you well. I have been accused of

Hope this massage finds you well.I have been accused of cheating me and my other members on a group project. We all went into the process of hearing and we all provide all the same evidences that show that we haven't copied any work from any other groups. However, I have been charged and got sanctions while the other members haven't since each one of us had been met with different counselors thus they came into different discussions. Although all our works were taken from the assigned textbook but they still didn't listen to me, now my question is can I sue them and fight for my right ? I mean it doesn't make any sense to charge me and dismiss the case for my group members and its out of justice.Thanks

I received a Common Pleas Summons on Complaint notification and I have 28 days to file an answer. Now I have received a "Decision/Entry granting Defendant's motion for more definitive statement" letter from the courts stating that the Plaintiff has 14 days to respond to this motion. Should I still file an answer to the initial summons or wait to see if the Plaintiff answers?

I am in the State of California, Los Angeles County. I served an individual for a restraining order for the harassment that I received from her. The judge decided that there was not enough evidence for such but I had enough for a civil suit.Today, the individual served me with legal fee court to pay an excessive amount to her lawyer. What do I do? Will I really have to pay this to this psycho?

Does the timing comprehensive response to an amended

Does the timing for a comprehensive response to an amended complaint in a Florida civil lawsuit get tolled if a partial response on the single issue of the claim for prejudgment interest, is filed?Scenario: An amended complaint is filed claiming, inter alia, prejudgment interest. A response on that issue alone is filed. Does that toll the statute on the 20 day requirement to respond to the whole complaint?
